America's speed champ presents his National winner with new metal wing
I WOULD like to say that I developed this ship after many years of experimenting, but I can't. Bill Atwood had just finished a sample model of his Triumph 49 Special and gave me the opportunity to use it. In the short space of a month, just before the '48 Nationals, I built and flew the model which took first at Olathe, Kansas, with a speed of 136.21 mph.
The construction of this plane is somewhat different in that it includes a metal wing. But it is not difficult.
